We met his new Cardiologist from Penn State Hershey today. They come to Gettysburg once a month for a clinic, so we didn't have to leave town. We all love her! She's great! Anyway, they started by doing an EKG to confirm the WPW is still there. It was. Then they did an Echo (he hasn't had once since he was an infant). It took 30 minutes, and he did GREAT! He laid still while the tech got the u/s pics he needed and watched a Scooby Doo movie. The Echo was normal They are having him wear a Holter Monitor for 24 hours to record any accelerations/tachycardia (if any) that occur in that time frame. After we send it back, we'll get the report in a week or less. Nothing has changed, WPW is still present so it's still just a waiting game. He'll either never have any problems, or they'll start as he gets older (preteen years is common for SVT's to start occuring). He has no restrictions, and we go back in a year

I love that kind of news. Of course, the best news would be the issues correct themselves - but if they can't a stable diagnosis is better then the alternative! It is always like a wieght lifted off my shoulder when we hear the news at our yearly appts.

How do they check for WPW? SVT runs in my family and as far as I know the only genetic form is WPW. My aunt, my mother, and I all have SVT but I have never found out what to do in order to find out if my son has it also.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.
